The laws which target the United States Citizens, which have been branded with a new, humiliating name of degradation, "sex offender" are so draconian.
These laws are no more than a setup to failure for anyone who falls under that umbrella.
Citizens for Change, America has been fighting for Constitutional Rights of those labeled Sex Offender for years. Very happy to hear of the intended overhaul.
Americans will not wake up and realize that the Government is no Of the People and For the people any more, and that the Constitution is dead... Until it hits them squarely in the face.
"Justice will only exist where those not effected by injustice are filled with the same amount of indignation as those offended? -Plato
U.S. Constitution - Article 1 Section 9
No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.
What does this mean?
Any law, ...which inflicts a greater punishment than the law annexed to the crime when committed, is an ex post facto law. For example, a law cannot be created tomorrow which will hold a person responsible for something he or she does today. Laws are binding only from the date of their creation or from some future date at which they are specified as taking effect.
In the Oxford Companion to the Supreme Court, Harvard's Professor Laurence H. Tribe has defined a bill of attainder as a legislative act "that inflicts punishment without a trial." The late Edgar Bodenheimer, professor emeritus at the University of California, identified an ex post facto law as a statute "that prescribes a greater punishment for a crime already committed."
The Constitution Guarantees you the lawmakers cannot make laws which add punishment to a crime committed before the law was passed.
Megans Law, and the Adam Walsh Act, (SORNA) laws are being applied Ex Post Facto. Totally Forbidden by the Constitution.
The sex offender registry applied Retro Actively violates the Constitution of both the United States and also The Good State of Louisiana in that it adds tons of punishments, PLURAL, upon men who have already served out their time. This hurts these men's CHILDREN by making them outcasts.
This means this law was put into effect in 2006. But if you committed any crime related to this law, no matter if it was 100 years ago, and you have already served your time, you would now begin being PUNISHED AGAIN for that same crime.
